Senior living community names associate executive director
A man with experience in health care business development is the new associate executive director and assisted living director at a senior living community in town.
Covenant Village of the Great Lakes in Grand Rapids, a faith-based nonprofit operated by Covenant Retirement Communities, said last month that Dan Stegbauer has been appointed to the positions.
Stegbauer will report to Jana Broughton, the community's executive director.
“Dan has compassion for residents and their families, and I’m confident his strong business acumen and leadership skills will benefit not only our staff, but our residents,” Broughton said.
As associate executive director, Stegbauer will assist in the overall operations of the campus: managing the budget; the individualized service plan, or ISP, process; and ensuring residents are "appropriately progressing through the care continuum."
As assisted living director, he will oversee department operations: resident care; staff development and training; financial management; and program planning and activities in support the organization’s LifeConnect philosophy.
Covenant Village said Stegbauer has a strong background in finance, strategy development and team management and building.
Most recently, he was a business development manager for Grand Rapids-based Spectrum Health.
Previously, he served as manager of strategy at Loyola University in Maywood, Illinois, a business development associate at Northwestern Memorial Healthcare in Chicago and worked at National Covenant Properties in Chicago.
Stegbauer has a bachelor’s degree in finance and an M.B.A. from North Park University in Chicago.
Stegbauer said the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination has been a part of his life since childhood and helped “mold me into the person I am today.”
He added that he has a personal connection with the retirement organization, as he has family residing at the Covenant Village in Minnesota and Covenant Village of Northbrook.
Covenant Retirement Communities serves 5,000 residents at 15 retirement communities nationwide and is a ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
